The London Eye to light up in honour of VE Day 75th anniversary

Landmark London attraction, the London Eye, will be honouring the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day as it lights up the capital in red, white and blue from sunset this Friday evening.

The London Eye is proud to stand tall with people across the UK, who have been encouraged to mark the occasion with stay at home parties or virtually with family and friends, as the iconic attraction lights up the city skyline in recognition of this momentous date in history.

“We’re proud to help mark this milestone anniversary by lighting up the capital in an iconic red, white and blue. During these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever for everyone to come together and show our gratitude to those that gave so much for us. We hope all of you continue to stay safe and support each other where you can.”

Sunny Jouhal, General Manager at the London Eye

The bank holiday weekend had originally been changed to allow for three full days of moments marking the occassion from Friday 8 May, but due to the outbreak of COVID-19 the planned activity has been revised. The Queen will address the nation at 9pm, with many other rousing moments happening across the day including a nationwide doorstep rendition of Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
